I am down from size 26\28 to a 18/20. Its unbelievable really. I’ve not worn this size since I was in high school. When I say I’ve been a big girl all of my life, it’s true. I have no idea how the other side lives or feels, which is probably why I don’t know how to miss or desire it more. I’ve also grown quite comfortable in my skin. My concern is my health deteriorating, which I am aware that the heavier I am, the higher risk I run. I was diagnosed with hypertension last year, and I just don’t like it. I don’t like taking medication to regulate my pressure. I just feel as if I am too young and fabulous for that, if I told the absolute truth. That’s for ‘old’ people. Ha! What a wake up call.


Today, I did my side by side, for the last 2 1/2 months. The pictures starts, after being on this journey for over a month. My original start date was 02/19/2015. JJ Smith has always said to look for the non-scale victories versus the scale victories, because our weight can fluctuate, so I started taking pictures of myself. The picture above truly tells my story of fat loss. It’s truly incredible. These photos are what motivates me the most. I can lose 5 pounds, and Ms. Thang comes, and I’ll gain 10 pounds, until she decides to leave. So, if I can tell anyone that is as heavy as I am, take pictures. I don’t want to lie and say that I don’t look for the scale victories, because I do, but let me tell you a secret. The first two pictures in March and April, I didn’t lose any weight. My scale didn’t move for almost 2 months. However, I was clearly losing fat. I’ll take the fat! Wouldn’t you?
